Post subject: Airplane search..

Hello all,
I am searching for a plane to use on the bush flights.. and I was wodering if any of you know of any that would fit these paramaters...?

- twin engine (piston)
- older airplane.. end of ww2 era maby?
- must be able to take off and land in a short distance....
- has a realistic flight model and a nice panel..
- somthing around the size of a dc-3.... but preferably not a tail dragger...

A very very tall order, I know, but there is no harm in asking!

thanks in advance!

I think this is what your looking for :

%20
FS2004 Beechcraft Model 18 Volpar

The Beech 18 was one of Beechcraft's most enduring designs.
In production from the late 1930's until the early 60's many are still in use all over the world.
This plane represents a late model Super H with the Volpar Trigear conversion.
The Volpar kit added an extended nose and converted the plane to a tri-gear configuration rather than the stock taildragger landing gear.
Features full control surface animation, opening door, dynamic shine, reflective textures, panel, virtual cockpit, rolling wheels and full lighting.
A paint kit is also included and repaints are encouraged.
Aircraft by Brian Gladden.
(See also VLPR_FIX.ZIP)

Name: volpar.zip
Size: 5,708,950

available at www.flightsim.com and www.avsim.com

...and for really heavy lifting try the C119 from Simviation or Flightsim. We used them in Korea to haul BIG HEAVY stuff from dirt strips.

The Nord Atlas from Flightsim is an also ran (smaller engines) as is the C82.

Fledermaus's Volpar Beech super G & H models are durable planes.

Not many tri-gear cargo planes of that vintage.

Regards,
Ken

~S~All,

Can't beat this one for really bad airstrip opns. The VJ-22 will carry over 9000lbs gross load. 24 pax seatbelted or 31 max (sheep).

My "Kafco FR8" handles well although a bit different from either fixed wing or helicopter. Have not tried oil rig helo pads yet.

Regards,
Ken

~S~ All,

The Osprey is from FlightSim.com and is Yahia al-Wajid's mod of Vlad
Zhyjulskiy's FedEx VJ-22. I then repainted the Special Ops. version as "Kafco FR8" and made a (more comfortable) left seat cockpit for it.

Engine position is controlled: tilt position(1) by spoiler and then (3) more positions by flaps. Transition to and from vertical/level flight is not difficult but requires some practice to become smoothe.

It could probably land on helo pads but it gets sloppy under 5mph.

Try it...great toy!

Regards,
Ken

~S~

A military surplus 1979 Sikorski S-61N seems like a good choice for flights when you are unsure of the landing surface. You can't get Jet-A everywhere but having wheels and floats are a good choice for short to medium hops in the boonies.

120kt cruise/450nm range/12.5k.ft ceiling
